Week 14 of the NFL season is upon us, and it is packed with games that will go a long way towards deciding who will be in and out of the playoffs. One of the best match-ups of the week sees the Minnesota Vikings and Carolina Panthers go head to head. The Oakland Raiders are still in the postseason hunt and can help their cause with a win over the flagging Chiefs. The New York Giants will have Eli Manning back under center for their NFC East rivalry game against the Dallas Cowboys. Let’s take a closer look at all three of these games and review the NFL week 14 predictions for this trio of games.

Minnesota Vikings vs Carolina Panthers

Date/Time: December 10, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS
Location: Bank of America Stadium
Live Stream: NFL Game Pass
NFL Odds: Vikings -2.5

The Minnesota Vikings may not have a team made up of household names, but that hasn’t stopped them from posting a 10-2 record that includes their current 8-game winning streak. The Vikings have been solid on the road this year, going 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS. A win here would allow them to clinch the NFC North.

 

Vikings vs Panthers NFL Week 14

 

One of the best divisional races is taking place in the NFC South, and at 8-4, the Carolina Panthers are in the hunt. Even if they don’t win the division, they still have a solid shot at the playoffs via the Wild Card route. Their cause was hurt by a loss to the Saints last week, so they really need a win to keep pace in the division race. The Vikings are in as a 3-point road favorite, with the point total set at 41. Let’s take the Vikings to win and cover, and the total to go OVER.

Score Prediction: Minnesota Vikings 23 Carolina Panthers 19

Oakland Raiders vs Kansas City Chiefs

Date/Time: December 10, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
TV Channel: CBS
Location: Arrowhead Stadium
Live Stream: NFL Game Pass
Odds: Chiefs -4

The AFC West has turned into something of a mediocre disaster, with 3 teams tied at 6-6. The Oakland Raiders are one of those teams, and they have hauled themselves back into the hunt with back to back wins. The Raiders are just 2-3 SU on the road this season and 1-3-1 ATS in those games.

A season that started with so much promise has turned into a nightmare for the Kansas City Chiefs. They started the season 5-0, but have now lost 6 of their last 7 to fall all the way back to .500. The defense, which has struggled of late, got back on track with 31 points last week, but they still lost to the New York Jets.

The Chiefs are a 4-point favorite, with the point total set at 47. I like the Chiefs to pull this one out, and the Raiders to cover, with the total going OVER.

Score Prediction:  Oakland Raiders 24 Kansas City Chiefs 27

Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants

Date/Time: December 10, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
TV Channel: NBC
Location: AT&T Stadium
Live Stream: NFL Game Pass
Odds: Cowboys -4.5

The Dallas Cowboys started the season as one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl, but issues both on the field and off has seen their season go off the rails at 6-6. They did break out of a losing slump with a win last weekend, but need to be perfect the rest of the way to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. The Cowboys are 3-2 SU and ATS on the road this season.

 

Dallas Cowboys

 

You can’t talk about off-field issues without talking about the New York Giants this season. A woeful 2-10 record and the benching of Eli Manning spelled the end of the road for coach Ben McAdoo, and it’s going to be interesting to see how this team responds in their first game without him. The Cowboys are a 4 ½ point road favorite, with the point total set at 41 ½. I like the Cowboys to win and cover, and the point total to go UNDER.

Score Prediction: Dallas Cowboys 23 New York Giants 16
